Travelogue: The Dyess Colony (Childhood home of Johnny Cash)

Daddy Bear got a bit of a chance to go exploring this morning.  This location is such a treat it will require multiple visits.  As I have said in the past, I am a fan of great retro in SL.  Well my friends this is the retro place to explore.

The Arkansas State University Heritage Project has recreated the Dyess Colony from Mississippi County Arkansas as it looked in 1934.  The colony was founded in 1934 as part of President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal program.  Please follow those links for more information.

What brought me to this build was this post i came across on Second Life Newser about Johnny Cash’s boyhood home I grew up on Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash.  Didn’t have a great appreciation for them at the time.  But came to realize, despite his vices, Johnny Cash was one of the brilliant musical story tellers of our times.

On the ASU Dyess Colony sim, you can find a brilliant recreation of the boyhood home of Johnny Cash here.  Please take time to explore the whole sim and the neighboring sim.  The architecture and the detailing are truly amazing.

Thanks for looking and enjoy.
